Hello URBAN eat lovers!

It’s that romantic time of the year and we all know that 4-letter word that’s been on everyone’s lips the past couple of weeks. Food! *Cheers*

Wait no… I mean ‘Love’. [Pause] Today I’m bringing you Food Love! (Clever, right?) As it’s Valentine’s Day today, what better way to celebrate #FoodLove than with a compilation of my Top 10 Romantic Film Food Moments.

It’s also a Saturday night, so if your partner has already cooked you a meal following John’s advice on Indulgent foods for Blokes to Cook, follow it up with a cuddle on the sofa and a film on the screen. I’ve selected a few of my favourites below, but I apologise in advance, as the following choices tend to fall under the category of being ‘chick flicks’.

All images click through to a YouTube video clip from the film – so on with the show!

The Notebook
Yep, such a surprise! If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you watch The Notebook, but make sure you come prepared with a lot of tissues. Yep, boyfriends, I’m sorry but if you go with this choice, you may have a blubbering mess on Valentine’s. At least it’ll get you in her good books though!

While the ending may be a tear jerker, there are many scenes that’ll make you go “aww!” and considering this is a #foodlove post – here’s one of my favourites, which features a healthy dollop of ice cream.

Disney’s Lady & the Tramp
Everyone who’s grown up watching Disney films remembers the iconic scene in Lady & the Tramp where the two star-crossed doggies eat spaghetti. And with good cause too. It’s a beautiful scene, even if it does set unrealistic expectations when it comes to eating spaghetti romantically and suggests that guys do share their food. One day girls! One day it’ll happen – there’s still hope.

The Vow
For all you Channing Tatum fans out there, here’s the cute scene from The Vow where he takes his amnesiac wife, played by Rachel McAdams, back to the café where they went on their first date to indulge in a game of chocolate roulette. Chocolate and the re-awakening of love? What more could you ask for!?

50 First Dates
Breakfast, especially waffles, is the foundation of any healthy relationships Want proof? Check out ’50 First Dates’. There’s more memory loss here (is that some kind of running theme in rom-coms?) because Drew Barrymore suffers from a kind of amnesia that means she can’t remember the events of the last 24 hours. That means Adam Sandler has to drop his bachelor game, fully focus on making Barrymore his own, and yes, eat lots and lots of waffles!

Love Actually
Ahh this good ol’ classic! I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t enjoy this film. Here we have Colin Firth stopping the dinner service to try out his Portuguese. If it wasn’t for a proposal, we’d be kicking up a fuss.

Disney’s Beauty & the Beast
Yes, I’m pulling out another Disney card because Disney seems to put love and food together perfectly.
This also proves my point that breakfast helps relationships blossom – so thanks Beauty and the Beast! Despite the Beast having terrible table manners, Belle still took a fancy to her hairy companion, so hey guys, there’s still hope for you yet!

Pretty Woman
Of course this one would be in the list, what isn’t romantic about a rich bachelor, a working girl, champagne and strawberries? Plus I’ve always had a soft spot for Richard Gere.

Pulp Fiction
Who says a milkshake date can’t be romantic? Pulp Fiction proves that the thick, gelatinous drink can be sexy as Uma Thurman and John Travolta share a straw in a 50s style diner. Who really cares about cooties when there’s chemistry?

When Harry met Sally
Not bonding over breakfast, but here we have bonding over lunch. If you haven’t watched this film, I’d suggest you get it immediately it’s a classic! Plus, everyone knows of the famous scene below…

Bridget Jones Diary
Finally if you’re single and ready to mingle, take a leaf out of Bridget Jones’ Diary. I’ve heard Ben & Jerry are both very accommodating.
